Spartans run away from the Badgers in East Lansing
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State used a 16-0 run early in the 2nd half to put away the Badgers, and win 58-43 Thursday.
Keith Appling led all scorers with 19 points.
It took Wisconsin until 1:22 remaining in the game to get a single player into double digits, when Ben Brust scored his 10th point.
The Badgers are now out of the running for the Big 10 regular season crown. They fall into 5th place, but can move up a spot with a win in Sunday's season finale at Purdue, combined with a Michigan loss.
